When most people think of gardens, they think of rows of fresh veggies or colorful blooms such as azaleas or delphiniums. Their ideal garden might include a fountain or pond, or artfully arranged stones. It may even be a Zen garden with clean sand and a simple rake. The Alnwick Garden in northern England distinguishes itself by cultivating over 100 species of poisonous plants, and there are many specialized medicinal gardens all over the world.
I’ve attempted some gardening in the past. Attempted is the key word there. Everything I’ve ever planted either died, got eaten by pests, or tried to take over the yard. I’ve accepted that I shouldn’t try anything more challenging than a few windowsill herb pots in the kitchen. I’ve always wanted to plant a carnivorous garden, though, full of Venus fly traps, bladderworts, and pitcher plants. I figure that at the very least, I wouldn’t have to bother feeding them. Bonus: fewer flies around the barbecue.
The first week of June is National Gardening Week, so if you have a green thumb, or know someone who does, check out these gardening mugs!
1. Dream Big
I’d probably need to include a miracle or two in my recipe.
2. To Do List
Gardens are pretty time-intensive. Worth the effort, though.
3. Armed and Dangerous
When Apple starts selling the iGarden robot with the handy phone app, I’ll jump on board.
4. Where Science and Art Intersect
Modern farming/gardening takes a lot of specialized knowledge and engineering. I want grass that grows a couple inches and stops.
5. Pushing Boundaries
My neighbor is a landscaper. When he moved in, his yard turned into a half-acre garden. It’s pretty, but I don’t envy the amount of work and upkeep it takes.
These are just a few of the great gardening mugs we have in stock. Are you part of a garden club? Remember that U.S. orders of two or more mugs get free shipping!
